edit, feb 2017: REPOST THIS WITHOUT CREDIT AND KNOW THAT YOU ARE HITTING ME WHERE IT HURTS. I just found this in an 'aesthetic board' post that had over 5k notes and zero credit. I never want to see that again.

Elwë Singollo / Elu Thingol from Tolkien's The Silmarillion (the prequel to Lord of the Rings) shot at Katsucon 2016!!

An extremely beautiful, cool toned portrait that captures the delicacy and loveliness of elven features. Well caught and made.

Written BEFORE LOTR or even THE HOBBIT, it was still in process of being rewritten when Tolkein passed on. His son got it into readable condition.

Thank you very, very much! I am actually the photographer though - you'll want to direct costume/modeling compliments to Rattle and Burn! (links in my author's note :) )

Brilliant costume and shot, but I'd prefer a more masculine model as King Thingol.
